‘Go Blue’ for World Diabetes Day
November is American Diabetes month and Nov. 14 is World Diabetes Day, an annual observance marked all across the globe.
The international “Go Blue” campaign encourages supporters to do just that for the occasion: Dress in blue and go blue at home by putting a blue bulb in your porch light or lighting a blue candle. Let it shine!
“Going Blue” is something everyone at U-M already know how to do well!
